If you stop being a good audience for this kind of humor, then they'll stop making these kinds of jokes.But one other thing to consider: If what they're saying really bothers you, maybe--despite how OK your sister is with the situation--you're not cool with it.I’m interested in taking our friendship to the next level.He does not know how I feel, but that’s not the problem.I don’t even know how my family is going to react if we do start dating.We are very close as a family and I don’t want to stir up trouble . And every time someone says something, it reminds you of that fact.
Recently we have been flirting with each other and I really like him.Courtney, 15, Charlotte, NCYou can't control what people say--you can only control your response to it.So don't react when people tease you about "stealing" your sister's boyfriend.The problem is that he is my sister’s ex-boyfriend. She cheated on him which was the reason why they broke up. Now my sister has been married for the past 6 years and has kids with her husband.
I really think that we would be very compatible together, but I don’t know how the family would react if we started dating. Should I follow my feeling and tell him how I feel, or should I keep it to my self?
I also don’t want anyone to feel awkward because of me.
